Hewats welcome to the market West Port Flat, West Port, New Galloway (Previously known as Alexandra House Maisonette) . A Mid Storey Two Bedroom Apartment.
The property originally was part of Alexandra House and separated and converted away from the main house approximately 30 years ago.
West Port would make an ideal home for either a First Time Buyer or as an Investment Property for Holiday Lettings such as Airbnb or as a Second Home for your own personal use. The property wasn’t allocated any outdoor space when separated from the main house, therefore there is no garden to maintain. You will find that the apartment is in need of upgrading and modernisation, basically a blank canvas, awaiting the new purchaser to put their stamp on it.
